I just use thin lines of white elmer's glue on the back of the art work, then glue it to construction paper or poster board. If warping is a problem, allow them to dry while stacked under something heavy.

  I "staple" all my middle school work to colored railroad board. You can barely see the staples and the kids don't mind at all. If you have a lot of time, there is always double sticky tape that you could use to adhere to the board... Kathy in Kalamazoo ---
